De-Stress for 2019

December 27, 2018

If one of your 2019 goals is to stay more relaxed and clear-headed, a little daydreaming can help.

According to a British study, taking five minutes twice daily to visualize yourself tackling big problems - calmly, fearlessly and successfully - can cut your stress, tension and anxiety by as much as 65%.

The strategy trains your brain to stay calm under pressure and also lowers your production of the stress hormone cortisol by 33%.
